HOWELL, Mich. – The man accused of shooting at a number of motorists along I-96 is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday on a number of charges including terrorism.

Raulie Casteel, 43, of Wixom is scheduled to appear in 53rd District Court in Howell.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is taking over the case. During the rash of shootings, Casteel is accused of hitting a man from West Michigan.

Scott Arnold of Delton, Mich. was shot in the rear after a bullet traveled through his door and driver’s side seat, hitting him in the left side of his buttocks. The bullet stopped near his hip socket. Doctors said it could remain there for the rest of his life.

The attorney general’s charges replace the charges filed earlier in Livingston County.

Casteel also faces separate charges in Oakland County.
